Managing feral cats to benefit the night parrot

Mon, 20 Dec 2021

Predation by the introduced feral cat has been highlighted as a key potential threat to the Endangered night parrot. To make management actions in night parrot habitat effective, this project will examine the spatial ecology of cats using a combination of new technology that is now available to researchers. In addition to this, new information on how to detect night parrot is being shared with many indigenous ranger groups as most suitable habitat will occur on indigenous protected land. This has proven a very successful strategy with new night parrot locations being discovered by indigenous rangers in Western Australia.
